I spent the weekend in Chicago celebrating my college roommate and mom-to-be, Katie. Bonus that I got to spend time with my former NYC roommate Emily and several other dear college friends that it's been way too long since we were all together!
Gorgeous chandeliers at Boarding House dinner Friday night -would love to have these in a tasting room one day!
|Can't even believe this is real life - never would thought Katie would be the first to have kids but could not be more excited, and how gorgeous does she look??|
|Impressive bloody marys considering we were at a baby shower! Sorry Katie, we'll drink one for you!|
|So great having all my loves in one place at one time!|
|Epic charcuterie platter at Quartino|
|Sunday morning visit to the Bean and Millennium Park|
|More gorgeous decor at Sunday brunch at Nellcote|
|Nothing like a little chorizo-stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates to kill a hangover on Sunday evening. Dinner at Avec.|
Chicago sure put on a show with perfect fall weather; if only it was like that year round and I just might consider a move with all of the great food, wine, fun neighborhood shops and sheer amount of friends new and old in close proximity!
